New TCBH! poem by resident poet Gary Lindorff: To Walk the Full Mile

By dlindorff - Posted on 09 December 2015

How short or long is a life lived --

In minutes, hours, days?

And in the ways we move with it --

How can it not amaze!


Just how we grow from seed to old

And find ourselves grown wise,

Almost in spite of ourselves,

Sunrise to sunrise.


And at what age do we conquer?

At what age do we relent?

At what age do we accept our fate?

At what age repent?


At what age do we stop dead

And contemplate our doubt?

At what age do we whisper?

At what age do we shout?...
